What's the Income of North Carolina Farm Families?

Record #:
A recent study shows that farm families in North Carolina have low income compared to non-farm family incomes in the state. This lower income is most likely attributed to the high proportion of families living on low-production farms and the large number of members per household. Also, farm incomes are highest in areas where industrialization allows farm works to engage in other types of labor along with farming.
